Essex Community Foundation

Braintree District and Greenfields Community Fund

The Braintree District and Greenfields Community Fund, set up by Braintree District Council and Greenfields Community Housing, provides local voluntary and community organisations, registered charities, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations with the opportunity to apply for funding to support their work.

Grants are available for organisations working in the Braintree District that either help residents to improve their health and well-being, increase aspirations and opportunities, or develop skills through training.

Read the guidelines for this Fund to see if you are eligible.

Examples of previously funded projects:


You should apply to this fund if you need a grant between £10,000 to £40,000. This fund can support your work for up to three years (i.e. £40,000 over 3 years, not £40,000 each year for three years).

This is a two-stage application process, starting with an expression of interest form. Call 01245 356018 to speak with an ECF grants officer about your work and funding needs ahead of applying.
